Mariposa Language and Learning Academy TEAM UP provides engaging afterschool program for our students. TEAM UP is an existing program that provides students with additional academic support and opportunities to engage in enrichment activities. Certified teachers provide students with an additional hour of Reading Language Arts and Math support after the school day has ended. In addition, students will receive a variety of enrichment opportunities including science, technology, engineering, the arts and math (STEAM), civics education, social and emotional learning (SEL), physical fitness, nutrition, drug/alcohol prevention, drama, and homework assistance. Programs are funded through grants, community contributions and partnerships. The primary funding source is from 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) Grants.
21st CCLC was re-authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the No Child Left Behind Act, to provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities for children attending low performing schools. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state standards.
